Alt Car key not working after minimizing a guest

Reported by: mkdav Owned by:
Component: GUI Version: VirtualBox 2.0.2
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: other Host type: Windows

Description

How to reproduce:

  1. Use the french canadian layout keyboard.
  2. Launch a guest OS.
  3. Minimize the virtualbox guest window.
  4. Try to use the AltCar key to write symbols such as @£¢¤¬. The AltCar key press is not recognized.
  5. focus back to the previously minimized window. The keyboard isn't captured and won't be until you do something in the menus.

This is pretty annoying, as the AltCar key is really useful in french canadian keyboards. Switching to another window without minimizing the guest virtualbox window works as expected.
